The Portland Winter Light Festival is an annual event that showcases over 114 illuminated art installations, performances, events, etc. Its mission is to connect community and enrich the public realm through artful lighting. This pvc sculptural light piece was programmed to be sound responsive. When the drummer played, a microphone picked up the sounds and translated into light.
The goals were to create a colorful sound and light responsive installation that would be installed outdoors for three nights.
The pvc and yarn sculpture took about 40 hours to create and provided a framework for the lights which were threaded through a mesh tube and affixed to sculpture. The piece was hung in an outdoor performance space.

[ manifesto ]
Art matters. Attention to the details of our environment leads to love of place, which brings us to take responsibility for the spaces where we live and work. And by extension, the people with whom we live and work. And by extension, to our local communities, our cities, our nations, and our world.
We champion the role of artists in our society. We need artists to provide us with inspiration, creativity, and imagination, and to help us envision a better world.
Architects and designers know that remarkable design can change everything. They connect the dots across disciplines, collaborating with artists to make the world a more beautiful place. They are the ultimate patrons of the arts.
In the process, design professionals promote imagination and creativity, and through their commissions, make original art integral to and accessible in people's lives.
Art in our public and private spaces helps us fight ordinary buildings, ordinary streets, ordinary cities. We celebrate the extraordinary.
The architecture of our buildings and the design of our interiors affect our happiness and well-being. Each of us deserves a daily dose of inspiration.
